Daily Devotional: October 20

Consider The Outcome:

How often do you think about the judgement of this world? Does it enter your mind that most people are not prepared for what happens after this life?

You should know that I grieve over the loss of every person who misses what I have prepared for those who love Me. I ache to hold people in My arms and comfort them in their suffering. They don’t know Me because very few today take the time to tell them who I am. You are living during a time that is unparalleled in the history of the world. People have more prosperity now than ever before, yet they are farther from Me than any generation since the Great Flood.

In those days, people did whatever they wanted and gave no thought to what their words and deeds would cost them later on. They didn’t seek Me nor listen when I spoke.

In a moment they were all lost, though I warned them for hundreds of years that judgment was coming. The world you live in today is exactly the same as it was during the days of Noah, and the world is headed towards the same fate.

If you love Me, if you are willing, if you care about people as I do, then please live your life to tell them about My immense love. Tell them that I died for their sins and I want to save them. Even if they don’t listen, tell them. You can save a few; and with others who do the same, you can all save many. Time is running out. You are the final generation, before I judge the world and no one can be saved. Think about your place in these perilous times, and consider the outcome if you do what you can to make an eternal difference in the lives of people.

The Lord saw that the evil of man was great on the earth, and that every thought and intent of his heart was only towards evil continually. ~Genesis 6:5-6 (RCR)

“I will sweep away everything from the face of the earth,” says the Lord. “I will sweep away people and animals alike. I will sweep away the birds of the sky and the fish in the sea. I will reduce the wicked to heaps of rubble, and I will wipe humanity from the face of the earth,” says the Lord. ~Zephaniah 1:2-3 (NLT)

But as the days of Noah were, so also will it be when the Son of Man comes. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the world did not know the judgment had arrived until the flood came and took them all away. It will be the same when the Son of Man comes. ~Matthew 24:37-39 (RCR)

So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do. ~Ephesians 5:15-17 (NLT)

Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side each other for the faith of the gospel. ~Philippians 1:26-27 (RCR)

I have seen a repeated theme, Lord Jesus, in Your desire to impress upon me how close we are to Your return. I read Matthew’s warning where You said that in the last days, the hearts of people in the world would be exactly as they were during the days of Noah.

If I can make a difference in the life of just one person, and they would find You and be saved, this would be my greatest achievement here on earth. All of the other things I am doing at this time, or will do later, cannot compare with making an eternal difference in the life of just one person.

On that day, when we are all together in heaven, I know that no one will speak of their achievements on earth. What we did to help a soul make it into heaven will be the greatest accomplishment, from heaven’s viewpoint. I want to invest my life into things that will last forever. Help me, Lord, to reach people who have hearts that are ready to receive You. Let me consider the outcome of everything I do each day and let me choose to live for You.
